APPLETON - It's time to dust off your bank of useless knowledge.
Lawrence University's annual trivia contest is this weekend. The Great Midwest Trivia Contest celebrates its 48th birthday with 50 straight hours of questions from Friday until Sunday.
Organizers say the 2013 edition of the contest features the usual theme hours, eclectic music crazy action questions for on-campus student teams and ridiculous prizes, plus a few surprises.
The contest begins at 10:00:37 p.m. Friday with the traditional reading of the "Super Garruda" question by university president Jill Beck. The "Super Garruda" is always the final question from the previous year's contest, which organizers claim to be "virtually unanswerable." This year's Super Garruda is, "In a comment card that was later pictured on a fence privacy screen outside the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in Summer 2011, what does visitor Tonee from Chicago state that they wanted to do when they viewed a Van Gogh exhibit at MoMA on March 28th and why didn't they act on their impulses?"
The contest is scheduled to be broadcast on the campus radio station's website .
